Wynyard Station is a heritage-listed underground train station that first opened its doors to the public in 1932. It is no coincidence that this is the same year that the Sydney Harbour Bridge was opened, marking a major step forward in the city’s transport infrastructure.
Originally built as a station with six platforms, the station has since undergone modification.

One of the station’s most fascinating features is the magnificent sculpture that was installed in 2017. The artwork is referred to as the Interloop and was made from the station’s original escalators. The mounting on the ceiling means that it is almost impossible to miss this great piece of work. Created by Sydney artist, Chris Fox, the work of art is intended to create wonderful memories of passenger travel in the past.
Some interesting facts about the Interloop at Wynyard Station include the fact that 244 of the original hardwood treads were used from the old station. The wooden steps were the last of their kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and their preservation elicited a positive response from the public with many passengers relishing childhood memories. The steps were installed with safety in mind, so passengers get to enjoy the view of this significant artwork.
Take the Wynyard Walk, a 180-metre long stretch that features a pedestrian link and tunnel connecting the station and Barangaroo. The walk’s entrance is on Clarence Street. This walk showcases splendid digital artwork on giant video screens for the art lover looking for a unique experience within the city.
